Mint 14.1 Cinnamon and skype 4.0.0.8 camera upside down

Postby Basgus » Wed Dec 05, 2012 9:50 am


It seams like older fix to get camera right in Skype on Asus computer not work in Linux Mint 14.1 !?
I have using this command in terminal to test funktion : LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l2convert.so skype
In Mint Cinnamon 14.0 it work but not in 14.1, adresse seams to be correct but i got this message :

gus@gus-U36SD ~ $ LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l2convert.so skype
ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l2convert.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
What to do ?????

I have Mint 13 xfce 64bit.

Synaptic Package Mgr now has Skype 4.1x.

You might use Synaptic to uninstall Skype 4.08 and install 4.1.

I had Skype 2.2x and its video would not change size.
I uninstalled Skype 2.2x and installed 4.1.0.20 using Synatic and was successful.

Good luck.

Thank's your answer Jim.

In mint 13 and Mint 14.0 it's no problem.
This problem start in Mint 14.1 Cinnamon !
I have also changed to latest Skype version 4.1.0.20 but the problem is still there.
It seams like the problem is to load libv4l/v4l2convert.
